Death Threats Against Page And The Dangerous Disinformation Operation Against Trump

Former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page has experienced what few people have since his name was first leaked to the media alleging he was working with the Russians on behalf of President Trump’s campaign in the fall of 2016. The now debunked accusations, which were leaked to the media, led to numerous death threats against Page in both 2016 and 2017.

It was mainly initiated by the research conducted by the embattled research firm Fusion GPS, who spearheaded the disinformation campaign against Trump. The research firm hired former British spy and anti-Trump propagandist Christopher Steele to compile a dossier against the Trump campaign, of which the unverified information was then dribbled to the media for several years beginning in 2016. Steele and Fusion GPS, whose founder was former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson, were paid to conduct the research by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton through their...
